Rating metrics: Outliers can be removed when calculating a mean average to dampen the effects of ratings outside the normal distribution. This figure is provided as the trimmed mean. A high standard deviation can be legitimate, but can sometimes indicate 'gaming' is occurring. Consider a simplified example* of an item receiving ratings of 100, 50, & 0. The mean average rating would be 50. However, ratings of 55, 50 & 45 could also result in the same average. The second average might be more trusted because there is more consensus around a particular rating (a lower deviation).
(*In practice, some albums can have several thousand ratings)

This album is rated in the top 1% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 87.0/100, a mean average of 85.8/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 87.1/100. The standard deviation for this album is 14.8.

Easily the best of Dylan’s catalogue. At this point in his career, he had been through a lot of troubles personally and professionally. He puts his best skills into this album and takes a step forward in his sound. At the same this album is a callback to his earlier days in which he only used his voice and a guitar to produce a good song. Compared to a lot of his 70’s work, this album is stripped back and simple. Undeniable a masterpiece.

J'adore cet album, c'est mélodieux, c'est beau. Je n'aime pas trop sa voix sur cette album, l'impression qu'il force un peu, mais ça reste un superbe album

Not the best Dylan album, but the most fun one for sure. Idiot Wind and Tangled Up In Blue stand out as amazing pieces of writing.

Good career comeback? Yeah. Among the greatest albums of all time? I have no idea where that is coming from.

Even though these are skillfully written tracks, the fact remains that, in this style, I'd rather listen to Joni Mitchell, James Taylor, Simon and Garfunkel, Jackson Browne, Carole King, Neil Young, Leonard Cohen, Nick Drake...the list goes on!

His 60s material had a reckless abandon, swagger, and dizzying skill which is just not nearly as present on this.

I want to say, this album is one of best of him. Musically it is unsurpassed, in terms of lyrics one of his best. Unbelievable what level of mastery can human achieve.

Apparently I'm just a sucker for love songs, and this is the best collection I've ever heard. While perhaps not his best lyrically, the writing is still masterful and deeply personal.

I find Dylan's voice to be grating at this point, and the songwriting just isn't nearly as good as it was on Blonde on Blonde or Bringing It All Back Home. Tangled Up in Blue is fantastic, though, I can't really say the same for the rest unfortunately.
